Pupil / Sport Premium

The primary PE and sport premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the
provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to
the quality of their Physical Education, physical activity and sport and aim to increase
the activity levels of every child. The funding is provided jointly by the Departments
for Education, Health, and Culture, Media and Sport.

The funding is allocated directly to primary schools and means it may only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools. ​All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils between the ages of 5-11 on roll will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus an additional premium of
£5 per pupil. The money spent is reported each year on each school`s website.

At Epping Upland we use the money in the following ways:

  • To help fund the salary of our SEAL (Social, Emotional Aspects of Learning) TA.
  • To provide individualised programmes that fit with what an individual child may require to support all aspects of their learning.
  • To help fund the salary of a sports coach who specifically works on a Sports SEAL programme with identified pupils.
  • To contribute towards costs for identified pupils in transporting them to sessions such as and trampolining sessions.
  • To pay for places for identified pupils to attend charged after school clubs (Football, Multi Skills, Rock and Pop)
  • To contribute towards EFR LDG (Epping Forest Rural Local Delivery Group) which is a collaboration of local schools that work in partnership to enable the joint purchase of a Relate Counsellor and Home School Support Worker that then support identified pupils in their individual school.
  • To help subsidise the cost of school uniform for affected families
  • To subsidise trips for identified pupil

What impact did this have for our Pupil Premium children in 2019/2020?
